Pulchritudinous

Inuits believed them to be the frozen embers from the aurora borealis.

It’s March already?!

OMG. Time flies like crazy airplanes. It’s my month again!

Ho-Hum

Lil’O is the smallest and youngest being this Chinese New Year, and was thus the centre of attention for the huge family gathering.

Kungfu fighting

It’s Chinese New Year and it seems like a costume party galore for the little ones.

Lil’ O

I hardly write about Oscar, so today I shall put in some effort to introduce the other O to the blogosphere.

Camouflage

Babysharkdooodoodododooo. Quite a job. Not sure whether his camouflage is for the baby/mummy/daddysharkfamily, or for the Chinese New Year red packets. Vain boy in winter jacket on the equator. Getting ready for japan!

Mystery

I normally do not do awards, but since I am still ringing the new year vibes, and today’s RDP happened to be Mystery…

Abstract

The abstract moment of truth when you suddenly see what it means by DNA and the thread that runs through your blood.

Asian squirrel

Corniest of all corn in the world:
Q: Why is this an Asian squirrel?

Loving objects

The little ones object to anyone of us feeling blue! I woke up this morning to two chuckling bouncing objects – little bundles of joy.

Herd

Here is the herd of our next gen in our ah-ma daycare.

Zesty

I can smell the lemony / vinegar-ish zest of the perspiration on their hair, just from looking at this picture!

A Photo a Week Challenge: Attitude

Having an upbeat attitude makes life so much easier to deal with. Here are some pics of crazy shit we do when we are not busy saving the world.

Umbrella novelties

The novel aspect of this six-pack of city umbrellas is that it was the largest wooden structure in the world.

Pulse of youth

Managed to find a laptop with a CD-reader, and extracted all my old Melbourne photos from 2005!

Can’t do

Can’t do math. Actually. The bonus is that it is something different. 😀 We sometimes need a little jolt to shake things up a little?

RDP #50: GOLD

The prompt for today is GOLD. Take gold as your inspiration and create in whatever way inspires you. Share your inspiration with the group with a pingback. If you need directions, they are available here. Today is the 50th day of Ragtag Daily Prompts! We’ve had at least one a day since our inception, which…

Grooves

Always find it enjoyable peeking through grooves and taking photos framed by the foreground from where I take them.

Vintage

The most classic stylish vintage kitchen I have ever visited. Welcome to Claude Monet’s kitchen and dining room.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

This photo meets most criteria – it has geometry, window, brick (tiny slitty one on top left), and bushes (errmm. tree = tall, spacey bush?)

Trace Train of Thought

My train of thought does not usually run on the same tracks. The magic train leaps and flies up in the air and lands on whichever tracks that is fancy (or it fancies) at the moment.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Drawing straight lines on sand must have been tremendous focus training. Diagonal lines without a strict line of reference – does it make it easier or harder?

Fluke

By some fluke encounter, I ventured into the heart of Paris Fashion Week last year, dressed in the sloppiest attire ever.

RDP #29: MILESTONE

Good morning. Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is MILESTONE. As we approach the milestone of providing prompts for one month, I invite you to use milestone as an inspiration for a post of your own. Writing of any sort or a photo or an illustration. Go wherever it takes you. When you’re ready to post, include…

Kin and Gin

Kinkaku-ji is the precedent for ginkaku-ji.

Antediluvian

Catching up on this prompt almost one week late would be considered pretty antediluvian, no?

Italian

The most Italian of this trip is the omu-rice without the omu (omelette) – my last meal before leaving Kyoto.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Light the Night

Okay, I cheat again, here is a moving photo. It is more magical this way. 🙂 Twinkle the lanterns At Kasuga-taisha, Nara. In response to Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Light the Night.

Check

Since today’s prompt is Check, here’s a photo of spidermen checking on our food.

Julienne

Went through all my foodie pics and there was absolutely no sign of anything julienne.

Smorgasbord

Do you really want to see what I have been eating the past two weeks? ❤ ❤

Purple

So many photos of flowers in different shades of purple today. From the light to the bright to the intense shades of midnight.

RDP #7 – PURPLE

Welcome to the Ragtag Community Blog.  This is the place where all our Ragtag Daily Prompts will be located, so it should be much easier for everyone to play along.  We are indebted to Leaping Toes from Oh Border! for establishing the Ragtag Community Blog for us and for you. Without further ado, here is…

Flummoxed

I am flummoxed by how affected I am by the summer heat. Or by how I have forgotten how affected I was by summer heat.

Imagination

Meditating with a crystal ball when a WhatsApp message comes in. Checking to see WhatsUp.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

Here is a photo of a transitory ground of sometimes sand, sometimes water, sometimes foam. All three states of being can be seen within this photo.

Values

He leaned against the window, pondering the full moon. His fingers inadvertently twirling the silk tassels of the Oriental lantern – another new decor from his travels.

Pedigree

We are a pedigree of selfie sapiens. Shhh, baby, don’t tell anybody.

The Return

The phone buzzed and the usual breakfast photo came in.

Rebel

Channelling my inner rebel. Life is short. Wear mismatched socks.

Rapidly happied

The rapid route to happy mood is … caviar … in technicolours!

Bubbles

Boo! Just a creepy picture of me posing with light bubblies~ Bwahahahaha.  

Vaguely a painting

There was one thing I did during the Shanghai stint that my sis lost all respect for me over. It was an activity vaguely like painting, except it was done through numbers.

Fret not~

Fret not! There are so many lovely things in this world that we may not have noticed or known about. Such as dancing baby stingrays.

Froth-tea

There is this frothy tea that I would have whenever I travelled into the Shanghai city office for work.

Luminescence

Also vaguely known as that thing you do when you have no life living in a village.

Smile

Smiles – big and small. Good prompt for a bad day. Kthxbye.

No warning

We had a lot of fun fooling around. Without any warning, babyboo started bawling.

My favourite place

My favorite place is an inconspicuous beach which had no name and unmarked on the map, and shockingly so close to home.

MyFam

Sis remarked today how these two peeps have such dramatic reunion everyday. 😀

Story of a boy

Story of a busybo(d)y.
Before he could even crawl, babyboo was already “helping out” with housework.

Fact

Alright, tonnes of work today. Fact. Short post it shall be.

The sound of food

After a full week of Chinese New Year feasting, I cannot believe that the first thought that comes to mind for today’s prompt is more food.

Disney Prince

Funny how I was just on the phone yesterday with someone and retelling the story of Oliver being such a “Disney Princess”.

Cheeky

This cheeky little thing is now a threenager. How fast time flies! He was born the day I moved to Mae Sot. Really my tick-tock little clock in more ways than one. ❤

Sing-a-long

There is this one thing I really miss about being in China – their massively popular and extremely rousing singing competitions.

Sparkles

On plane to SF! Feeling a quiet kind of excitement. Expecting a thrilling start with an eyeful of cosmic blessings via Orionids. ❤

Wild and Free

That was the time I understood that wild life is happy out in the wild, and that human beings should not always be so selfish in wanting to domesticate them.

Coincidance

This beat and movement is going to stick around in your head for a bit. hehe. AND that feeling of achey-shoulders. #sorrynotsorry
Have a great day~

Family ride!

After a grand 3-year hiatus, our family finally gets to ride together again, now that Babyboo is old enough to join us. Our new 2-year-old member now rides with us for our journey to breakfast and a morning stroll around the park. The yuge park that we grew up around since we moved into urbanization. …

Sing~

We went karaoke-ing last night after dinner, and it was great fun! Dinner was wonderful, we had steamboat, which I have not had since moving back from Shanghai. The mega plus point is that I felt really safe eating the steamboat here. 😉 in a good class restaurant in Singapore. Sang our hearts out! Could feel…

Versatile Blogger Award

Wheehee~ Got my first blogger award nomination! I have gone public with my outerworldly musings only three months ago, and it is such great encouragement to be nominated by Sheryl and lodgerofarabica. Thank you so much, I am honoured. ❤

Tuning in

Oops, I did it again. I think I ‘accidentally’ channeled again today.
